BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Assessment of the invasion depth of colorectal neoplasia is important in deciding between endoscopic and surgical resection treatment methods. Prior to attempting endoscopic resection, the lesion is lifted by submucosal injection, and a positive "non-lifting sign" is usually considered to indicate deeper submucosal infiltration. The purpose of this prospective multicenter study was to assess the predictive value of the non-lifting sign for differentiating between… CONTINUE READING
